how do you write your text files in regards to the track numbers and names? like this?:

Disk 1:
01 - Hippy smiles
02 - Trees
03 - Sunshine

(the above is 'grabable' by the LMA engines and fills in song titles for you automatically in the metadata sheet)

or like this?

01. Hippy Smiles
02. Trees

? (I do not know about the efficacy of the above).

or like this?

d1t01 - Hippy smiles
d1t02 - Trees

(the above is the way I used to write my .txt files and i remember the engine doing so/so on grabbing the name. i reported this to jon and he may have tweaked the engine to grab better file names in the above style, but at that time i just switched to the first example style, as it is just less bits to clutter up the internet with.

hope we can figure out what is up and then jon can make it so that the engine can grab the song titles better for you and others.

Mine is like the second one, but it goes like this:

01. [tab] Track One Name [a few tabs] Time
02. [tab] Track Two Name [a few tabs] Time

I think it makes for a nice looking info file. Check out the info file from one of my recent uploads:

Maybe get rid of the tab between the track number and title. My format is really similar (also a nice looking info file), but no tab there and it works great.

Here's an example: http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=9155

The tabs might be the problem...I write mine like example #2:

01. Hippy Smiles
02. Trees

but use a space instead of a tab. Different text editors treat tabs differently so for consistency's sake I just use spaces...
